"In the second half of 2011, we further strengthened our MMORPG and web and social game pipeline by following our strategy of focusing on games with the highest quality. Among our robust game pipeline, Firefall, a revolutionary next-generation triple-A title MMOFPS game, will be presented to online gaming enthusiasts worldwide."
